Dear Stockport NHS Foundation Trust,

I am looking to gain information on non-medical temporary staff and agency processes within the trust. Please find below 3 questions.

1.) What is the non-medical, non-clinical, temporary staff spend breakdown from the last 12 months (Jan 20-Dec 20)?

2.) What agencies have been used by the trust within this time?

3.) Does the trust recruit via PSL's, Master Vendor or Vendor Neutral Managed Solution?

Yours faithfully,

Ryan Hargreaves
